Peace History Society
Historical Perspectives on Engendering War, Peace and Justice
October 19-20, 2007
The PEACE HISTORY SOCIETY invites paper proposals for its fifth international conference that focus on the interrelationships between gender and war, peace and justice.
From Aristophanes' comedy Lysistrata, a comedic example of Greek women using nonviolent direct action to stop the Peloponnesian War, to contemporary debates on the war on terrorism, matters of war, peace and justice have had a gendered dimension. This conference seeks to shed light on the nexus of gender, war, peace and justice.
We are most interested in papers that take a historical approach to this topic. We welcome panel and paper proposals that compare different historical periods and geographies as well as those that focus on a particular event, place or time-period. Paper proposals about peace history not related to the conference theme will also be considered.
Topics might include but are not limited to:
The Peace History society is unable to provide travel assistance or financial support to conference attendees.
Strong conference papers will be given consideration for publication in a special issue of the journal Peace& Change to be co-edited by the program co-chairs. For more information on the PHS and for conference updates, visit the PHS website, at www.peacehistorysociety.org.
Please forward proposals for individual papers or a panel (limit of 250 words per paper) and a CV to both program committee co-chairs by February 1, 2007:
